Tropical Storm Bertha – no longer impacting Puerto Rico

2 Day Tropical Weather Outlook from the NHC

2 Day Tropical Weather Outlook from the National Hurricane Center

The official hurricane season runs from June 1 to November 30; but storms can appear before or after these official dates. During the hurricane season we will highlight those storms that could potentially impact Puerto Rico; either directly or as a storm passes the island. Below you will see a tropical storm tracking map that will focus on storms that are close to Puerto Rico. If no storm is close, then the map will highlight the most current storm that has formed in the tropics.

What will the weather be like in Puerto Rico?

I’d love to be able to say it will be glorious for when you are here, but unfortunately I do not have a crystal ball and I can not predict the weather. What I can do is share with you several services that I check on a regular basis to see what the weather is likely to be for a particular time of year.

Current Weather


First we have the current weather. Now some sites will try to show you what the weather will be like for the next week or so, but I do not believe that this can be that accurate, so here we have the current weather conditions plus the forecast for the next few days.

Most forecasts for Puerto Rico will indicate that there is a chance of showers / thunderstorms, this seems to be a standard forecast. In reality if there is no tropical storm approaching / passing by then usually these showers if they do appear will be over fairly fast. Unfortunately if a tropical storm is due, then the weather could be more unpredictable.

Typical Monthly Weather

Even though it is not that easy to say what the future weather will be, we do have past weather data to go by. Below you will see the typical weather that you can expect depending on what time of year you decide to visit Puerto Rico
